This fine Riesling wine originates from the Mosel valley with its steep vineyards and offers an extraordinary premium wine quality.Forward fruit and floral aromas of apples and peaches with just a hint of citrus. The natural acidity gives the wine a perfect balance that is refreshingly crisp and leaves your mouth watering. This wine pairs well with a wide range of food like light salads, poultry, seafood and blue cheese or just on its own. Serve chilled. - Winery
This ever-popular Mosel Riesling is brimming with white peach and apricot fruit on the nose with a limey, mid-palate acidity. Calling it a perfect summer thirst quencher would be an understatement - deck party anyone?
A semi-dry Riesling offering mouth-watering flavor of ripe peaches, apples, and a hint of citrus fruit.
Probably the top-selling German Riesling in the store, the Relax is light and fruity, with bright green apple, lime and apricot flavors. Semi-dry, but not overly sweet, this wine is best chilled on its own, or with spicy Asian or Mexican cuisine.
